Sports Genomics Study

We are studying how athletic performance affects the human gut microbiome. This research study will involve next generation sequencing of gut bacteria before and after athletic events.

Participants’ commitment includes providing a minimum of two saliva and two fecal samples while keeping track of how much they eat and sleep. Participants may also volunteer to donate blood samples (optional).

To be eligible, you must be:

  • Training for an athletic event for an individual or team sport (ages 18-55, in good health)

OR

  • Less active individuals who are interested in participating as healthy controls (ages 18-55, in good health)

Participants will be compensated in Amazon gift cards for their participation. Transportation compensation is also available.
